    Fast paced action stabbing game Nidhogg is getting a well deserved sequel in 2017. Destroy your opponents with all new moves and weapons across ten different arenas. The sequel takes on a more 3D aesthetic over its original 2D counterpart.

    Pretty excited for this one, the original Nidhogg was hours of entertainment for me and my buddies.

    The new art style is ASS. Too bad, I hope they reconsider.

    Honestly very upset by this interpretation of a once minimalist game, in which the action was created by the people playing it, rather than kooky cartoon graphics and jumpy music.

    I'd say it looks good so far. It could also be a pseudo-generation feel to it. the first one emulates Atari to maybe NES-Generation of gaming systems. This one appears to be the next step, going SNES with it's visuals and making characters look "Goofy" as a form of emulating how the SNES-era had wacky-looking characters. It's not meant to be uber serious, but it doesn't want to be cartoony either. Give it time, maybe the visuals will grow on people. I like it so far.

    I find the new aesthetic awful, personally. Not touching this unless it gets a big overhaul. I'm fien with something different, but not THAT.
    Heck yes! Local multiplayer is still popular for some parties I'm at.
